Biodegradable plant pots

Cool Hunting: EcoForms. 'For an eco-friendly alternative to plastic with a no-frills look, EcoForms are made from compressed grain husks with natural, water-soluble binding agents. No pollutants are used in the manufacturing process, all byproducts are recycled and at the end of their five-year lifespan, EcoForms will biodegrade completely.'

Not sure what stops them breaking down BEFORE the end of their 5 year life span, ending in a pulpy mess of plant and grain, but it's a cool idea. Not that I feel like I throw many plant pots away.
